Emma Hataway is a sophomore studying physics and math at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon.
Emma has had a lifelong love for the sciences. Throughout middle and high school, Emma explored different subjects, but particularly enjoyed physics and chemistry. After finding a passion for the mathematical side of physics, Emma decided to pursue her double major at Lewis & Clark.
In her first year of college, Emma was drawn to courses such as multivariable calculus and introductory physics. She became part of a supportive community of physics students, and she quickly joined the physics club on campus. Over the past two years, Emma has been a vital member of the college’s SPS chapter, and she looks forward to taking on a leadership role next year and continuing to create a welcoming environment for students in physics at Lewis & Clark.
While Emma is not yet exactly sure what she will be up to after college, she is interested in graduate school. With this possibility in mind, she ultimately would like a career that allows her to use her knowledge to help better the environment in some way. Her work with the Desert Research Institute has inspired her in this goal.
